in Behind The Books

Check out these AWESOME, amazing and inspiring videos of three of our absolute favorite authors (scroll down further below, to see them).

Abbi Glines discusses her favorite characters and great fan moments (cute!!), Colleen Hoover discusses how much her life has changed since writing “Slammed” (I think she’s still in shock over it all), and Jamie McGuire takes us to her house (she’s got horses!!), and has some advice for aspiring authors.

They’re going on an “Indie Author Tour” in October, and here’s a little “kickoff”! These 3 ladies in 8 cities in 8 days. It’s pretty exciting, right? I’ve got some great info about that, too:

  • All the TOUR EVENT RSVPs are here: https://www.facebook.com/AtriaIndieAuthors/events <— (these are all their “Tour Stops” and dates). You can RSVP if you’re going! Check it out to see if they’re going to be in your area.
  • Twitter Hashtags for their tour so you can keep up with the fun stuff online: #AtriaIndies #JACTour (jamie abbi colleen)
  • You can also keep up with the tour, and these authors on the “Atria Indie Authors” Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AtriaIndieAuthors (<— go “like” the page!! I did!)
  • ALSO!!! Don’t forget —> This Wednesday I’m chatting with them, LIVE! And all of you are invited to the chat, too! Ask questions. In fact, they’d love for you to start tweeting your questions here to #atriaindies

Join our Twitter chat on Wednesday, October 9th 2013 at 1:00 pm EST with three our favorite authors: Abbi Glines, Colleen Hoover and Jamie McGuire. It’s going to be so fun!!

I love these authors, each book has been special for different reasons. I will say that Hopeless and Losing Hope touched my heart and soul for personal reasons and how this subject matter was handled was brilliant. I would love to see these ladies on tour but they are not coming to my area, maybe someday. This is a great giveaway since I do not have any of the physical books only the ebooks. Thanks for the giveaway and all of the extras.
